SwimCloud partnered up with NAIA for the Champs selection system, and they realized the official psych sheet this Friday with the qualifiers.

Every year swimmers have become faster in the NAIA, breaking barriers and being competitive with NCAA teams. The NAIA swimming and diving teams have surprisingly raised the level of the organization.

The expectations for this year’s championship are nothing but fast swims. Keiser’s women’s and men’s program have topped the rankings the entire season. Coach Adam Epstein said earlier in the season that his swimmers are hungrier than ever and expect to be on top of the podium again.

Some other programs to watch during the championships are St. Thomas University, SCAD, University of the Cumberlands, Milligan University, and Olivet Nazarene.
